  1. Thank you for sharing this delicious tomato sauce and for giving some serving suggestions. I love that you add some sun dried tomatoes and some herbs too. It must taste really good. I shall try the sauce with some pasta. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Hi Liz! Thanks for your comment, this is a great wee sauce and very versatile. I love sundried tomatoes - I could eat them straight out of he jar so it can be a struggle for them to last long enough to make it into this sauce!
